The power of is captured in the

expression of amazement you can see in our

clients faces when they see their project

visualisation for the first time.

The fact that

Lumion can handle

such large scenes is a

big plus. There’s

nothing out there that

can do that.

Tal Aisenberg

Rendering used to

be reserved for a few

specialist jobs and

making animations was

completely unrealistic.

Lumion changes all that.

When I first

opened the program, 

I immediately got the

same feeling I had

years ago when we

discovered SketchUp.

Involving Architecture

Lumion's seamless integration with

Revit and it's quick-to-learn interface has

enabled our team to concentrate on

resolving the design instead of resolving

the presentation. The speed of generating

high quality video and renders imbued with

'life' and 'movement' has allowed us to

produce marketing material for clients

much more efficiently than before with

phenomenal response from both clients

and their customers alike.

Bryan Brinkman : CEO - B4 Architects

We are able to do presentations to a

standard previously not possible allowing us

to improve our client interaction and their

ability to see designs in detail. In partnership

with Micrographics we have been able to offer

our clients a completely new experience by

adding Lumion 3D animations to our list of

client services.
